~ Random Thoughts ~
My brother calls this one "Gothic." I just designed a necklace around a silver heart pendant that I've had for the longest time.
Gothic Necklace
I added black seed beads, silver daisies, and deep red freshwater pearls. I was surprised at how a simple design could look very attractive.

The first day I wore it, I had to stop by a couple of stores for errands. The sales clerk at Barnes and Noble asked if I make my jewelry, adding that it looked "professional." The cashier at Michael's asked the same question and said it looks "very nice." With a broad smile, I nodded, handed out a business card, and said, "There's more at my website." Even if they don't come around at all, I sure had a blast receiving the compliments. Simple joys make my day.

Polymer Clay Beads and Cord Bracelets For Sale (Philippines)

My polymer clay handmade bead bracelets are for sale again.

I had to shutter my Etsy store where I sold these bracelets because our family had to relocate to Manila. Now that the dust has somewhat settled, I’m selling again. Although, for now, to customers in the Philippines only (I’ll soon figure out how to ship overseas). One of these days I will reopen my Etsy store.

This batch of bracelets is PhP280 each. With free gift packaging (see photos). Pick-up is preferred. Shipping (within the Philippines) is additional. Payment can be cash or through Paypal, bank deposit, and local money transfer.

All the beads are polymer clay — lightweight, tough, and inert. This batch has no metal parts. The sizes fit wrists measuring 6 to 7 inches. I can resize if necessary. And oh, there’s a lifetime warranty. My lifetime. If (or when) the cord breaks, I will happily restring, no charge, no questions asked.

As always, I’m open to suggestions, ideas, and insights. Depending on available materials and resources, I can accept commissioned pieces.

Please email me [ rubybayan@gmail.com ] so that we can talk about logistics.

Thanks!

Latest Update: All of these bracelets are SOLD. They remain in the gallery as inspiration for custom requests (subject to availability of materials). Click on the images for high-res versions.
